Is there anyway to control the volume of the rhasspy by software instead of getting the volume level from alsamixer?
I wanted to have this independently because I have other sound components running on the same raspberry pi each with its own volume settings and I want to leave the alsamixer on the top volume.
But since I cannot control the volume level on rhasspy it is just too loud.
Current audio components on the rpi:
- shairport-sync which uses the asound/alsamixer direct volume level but controllable on the physical volume button on iOS devices
- mopidy which has a “wrapper” in which I can set a different volume level than the asound/alsamixer volume level (up to its maximum)
- rhasspy which uses the asound/alsamixer direct volume level. It is here that I would like to have something similar to mopidy where I could set a lower volume than the one defined on the sound/alsamixer direct volume level.
